Our organic fig farm is situated on a hill overlooking the sea on the green island of Evia in Greece (3.5 hours from Athens). Our farm doesn't have electricity and volunteers enjoy the traditional Greek cooking with homegrown vegetables, the natural spring water and the starry skies. Duties include predominantly fig related jobs: picking, drying and packaging, from August to October. From March to end of July, there are gardening and other farm jobs to do, such as building maintanance. During this period we are looking for volunteers with skills such as building, plumbing and carpentry. We have a tradition of successful relationships with our volunteers, who enjoy the experience and are a huge help. We generally like volunteers to stay for long periods of time but short stays are acceptable between August and October. In their free time volunteers often enjoy swimming in the sea (7 km away), going for walks in the hills or practicing yoga (my daughter Katerina, is often around in the summer and offers free lessons to volunteers). Helpers from October to November will be helping with some olive picking as well as general farmwork. Some information of how to get to the island. There are 3 buses daily departing from Athens LIOSSION BUS DEPOT which is situated in KATO PATISSIA. For people who travel directly from the airport to the island there is a bus that leaves every half an hour to the above mentioned bus depot. For people who are already in Athens, they should take the electrical train from the centre of athens with destination of KIFISSIA and get off at the KATO PATISSIA station. The times of the buses are: 6.45, 12.45, 14.45 and you get off at ISTIEA EVIA. Please ring us on 00306944790812 for any queries and also to tell us which bus you will eventually be on.
